  • I am having the same issue if I use any setting other than the Default Permalink setting. I have tried all the other permalink settings and every one but the deafult causes the 500 error. Have you found a solution to this issue?

    Could you post the url of the download link? Check your .htaccess file is showing the default

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress


    I am still facing this error, tried dozens of htaccess variants, re-installs, database clean ups, database upgrades, permalink structures, chmod settings etc. Still no results.

    Is there any other reason?

    The downloads are all on this page


    Try looking into the webservers error.log it will often give hints as to the nature of the error

    Hi Tomontoast,

    Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I can’t discover any hints from the log. For example here’s a record of the download.php script.

    [17/Dec/2012:23:47:49 +0100] “GET /wp-content/plugins/download-monitor/download.php?id=5 HTTP/1.1” 500 403 “” “Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:17.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/17.0” – –

    If you want I can sent you the whole log?

    Thanks again!

    There is a 403 error being called. This is often due to incorrect file permissions see Try changing file permissions temporarily to 777

    I am trying to run this on a windows server. I change the default permalinks in the settings (does not matter what option I choose), and this plugin is the only one that breaks. All other pages show the “pretty” permalinks and work without any issues.

    I did not change the custom URL for this plugin.

    The error message is http error 500.50 – URL Rewrite Module Error
    This page can not be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

    I do not have a choice but to run this on a Windows Server. The person I am helping with this is very insistent that this needs to be a windows server as they are hosting multiple sites on this server and some of them are using ASP.

    I created a web.config file and checked the permissions on this file and the entries in this file. Everything is correct.



    Hi tomontoast,

    Again, thanks.

    Unfortunately it still doesn’t work. Ik set the changemods to 777 for the following folders and files:


    Other than that I removed some oher plugins like db-manager and wp-super-cache, all without result.

    Any other ideas maybe, you can have a look if you want.
